Mountains have a great way of telling you just how insignificant you are in the scale of things.
Walkers on a snow field; photo taken from the Jungfraujoch.
The Jungfraujoch, with the ‘Top of Europe’ building perched on its top. (elevation 3466m ASL). Note the tiny ant-people at the bottom!
A crop of the previous photo, showing the Top of Europe building.
Another view of Top of Europe. This is not my photo — well, it’s my photo of someone else’s photo, on display at the Top of Europe. You can see the white flare of my flash.
Avalanche on the flanks on the Jungfrau. I’ve highlighted the building to give an idea of the size of the avalanche.
The famous North Face of the Eiger. I’ve highlighted a person at the base. Imagine climbing that!
